Wednesday night, Amy Schumer sent a very cryptic tweet.
In response to a call on social media for the comic and Inside Amy Schumer star to sever her professional relationship with comedian and Inside writer Kurt Metzger, Schumer tweeted, I didn t fire Kurt.
Schumer came back to explain that the show wasn t cancelled, she was just focusing on her upcoming standup tour and book The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, out this week and as such there wouldn t be a Season 5 in the foreseeable future so she wasn t working with any writers.
After another comic was banned from the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater amid allegations of rape and sexual assault, Metzger took to Facebook to decry the proceedings.
His point in the now-deleted post was that the comic was punished professionally, but that his accusers hadn t sought legal recourse.
Following the comic s initial comments, Schumer received a barrage of tweets asking why she continued to support and work with Metzger whose Facebook profile currently lists his job as Former King of Feminism at Stand-Up Comedy .
